A Trip To The Planets - silent with added sound

something has gone horribly wrong 8-p
Prefer flash? · Embed · Questions/Feedback?

Expressionistic and surprisingly accurate science fiction film from the silent age. We sea the solar system from the view of a flying saucer like vehicle of the future. Educational.

This movie is part of the collection: Silent Films

A great silent educational movie, with the latest science from probably circa 1920+, definately before the discovery of Pluto in 1930 by Walt Disney... err maybe it was Clyde Tombaugh. Awesome music and sound effects added contemporarily. Some interesting sets and effects were used. I wish they would have explained how a "powerfull electric motor" was to be utilized to travel between the planets... Probably to turn a REALLY big propeller.
Doing a little research... knock me over with a feather... a dwarf planet, Eris, was discovered in 2005 thought possibly larger than Pluto, now also considered a dwarf planet, along with three others: Ceres, Haumea and Makemake.

That is the end of today's astronomy lesson. Class dismissed!!

If you like these types of old movies, this shouldn't disappoint!
